From electric kettles to avocado slicers (for late-night guac), these items will take an average college dorm room to the next level. (But no, nothing on this list can make your dorm room bigger, sorry.)
From mugs of tea when flu season rolls around to boiling water for instant oatmeal or ramen, an Electric Kettle is a dorm staple. (Author’s note: my college roommate tried to make hot chocolate by putting chocolate milk in my electric kettle—I do not recommend this use case.)
Top that toast with everyone’s favorite green friend. This tool comes in handy for all those avocado toasts you’ll be eating, as well as game day guacamole-making. And after all is said and done, there’s only one dish to clean up.
Keep your favorite cereal and granola fresh in a BPA-free storage container designed to easily pour and store. Bonus: the airtight lids mean no spilling, which means no crumbs, which means no ants, which means no tense roommate relationships!
Early classes and late nights are no problem, especially when you have a travel mug to tote around to class time and study sessions.
Everyone needs a can of chicken noodle soup every once in awhile. (And canned chickpeas. And canned beans.) This can opener will be put to good use, plus it has a built-in bottle opener (equally important!).
Decorating a dorm room is serious business. People plaster their walls with their fondest memories from home. These Mini Clips are magnetic, which means there won’t be any problem taking them down during move-out, and they’re perfect for hanging photos of family and friends, not to mention to-do lists.
The Hot Tool Styling Mat is great in shared bathroom spaces—no more waiting for a straightener to cool down on the bathroom counter; just use it, unplug it, and wrap this mat around it to make transportation back to your dorm room easy.
Keep your clothes organized even in tiny dorm drawers, with drawer dividers, so you can keep socks and shirts in the same drawer without them getting all mixed up. And adjustable drawer organizers are perfect for storing things like makeup, school supplies, and jewelry.
Stay hydrated for class—but don’t let your water bottle get all grimy bringing it all over campus. Water bottles should be cleaned every day, and this cleaning set helps you clean all the parts, including the straw and mouthpiece.
